Celtic have handed Rangers the perfect motivation for their clash against Aberdeen on Sunday afternoon after their dismal draw with Hibernian.
It could have been much worst for our Old Firm rivals, who at one point were 2-0 down at Easter Road before a late rally handed them a point.
Rangers loanee Jamie Murphy was on a personal mission, scoring one and assisting another against his former fierce rivals.
For Rangers, this was a great result.
The Bears are now eight points clear and have the chance to extend that to double figures against Aberdeen on Sunday.
Yes, Celtic do have two games-in-hand, but the chance to extend the gap even further before those fixtures are completed is critical for Steven Gerrard.
Should the Gers sweep aside Aberdeen tomorrow, Celtic can only cut the gap down to five points should they win both their games – which is still a two-game gap, perfect.
Gerrard will be using this as his team talk before the game at Ibrox tomorrow, so he will have to thank Neil Lennon for that one.
The Bears have been handed a big boost ahead of what could be a tough afternoon too, with a number of players missing for the Dons.
Lewis Ferguson, who many consider one of Aberdeen’s best talents, will miss out after returning a positive COVID-19 test after the recent international break.
As for Gerrard and the Gers, it will be picking up where we left off after the 8-0 demolition of Hamilton – same again please lads.
